Winter, Suddenly

Monday it was 80° and Denver was bathed in the bright yellow sunlight of autumn.

I know that this will be the case here in Minnesota soon enough. Winter is one of my favorite seasons for a bunch of reasons. I'm excited to see it come now.

Thanks for your kind words over on my blog. You were there when I needed some encouragement and a kind kick in the butt to keep moving. It worked. Thank you!
